SANDY TOES & OCEAN VIEW- A QUAINT COTTAGE NEAR THE BEACH

Little Gasparilla Island Cottage Rental Photos and Description

This 3 bedroom 2 bathroom gem has recently been remodeled with a fresh coat of paint and tile throughout. With 1520 living sq feet and a total of 3276 sq feet, this spacious vacation home offers enough space to relax indoors or lounge on the wrap around porch. Between the house and beach is a vacant lot for an unspoiled view of the Gulf of Mexico. A brief walk and you are sinking your toes in the white sand with just a few more steps to wading in the crystal clear water.

This serene spot offers approximately 7 miles of pristine natural shoreline, the perfect spot for rest and relaxation.

There is a quaint chapel located in the center part of the island, in a section called the Preserve, on the main road. Services are held every Sunday at 9:30 during the summer months and at 10:30 during the winter. These are non-denominational services offered for a time of worship and fellowship for all who visit Little Gasparilla Island.

Suitability:
  • pets considered
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • smoking allowed
  • Minimum Age Limit for Renters

My wife and I (both 5th generation Floridians) have been coming here since 1975. We just love the area and the unique nature of Little Gasparilla Island. Our daughter grew up here on family vacations and now our twin grandaughters are discovering all the wonders of LGI.

Paris Dickey purchased this cottage in 2012

This is a wonderful location for beachcombing and catching up on your vacation novel. A brief walk and you are on the pristine white sandy beaches of Little Gasparilla Island.

Spacious screened-in porch surrounding three sides of the home. Open floor plan allowing company to enjoy each other from most rooms and still having the privacy of bedrooms.

An ocean view while doing the mundane of washing dishes seems like much less of a chore. The openess of this home with natural lighting from two sky-lights is peaceful and relaxing the moment you step inside.

GREAT GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
My family and I just returned from our trip to Gasparilla and it was fantastic! From the moment we booked our trip all the way through the returning of our security deposit, Paris was so helpful and responses couldn't have been any faster. The house was extremely clean and very comfortable for the 7 of us. It was in a great location and the golf cart was a perfect addition to our trip for exploring. Gasparilla is a great place to vacation with the family and Sandy Toes is a great place to stay, we couldn't have been happier with our decision to pick this house!

PARADISE FOUND

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful!!! I arrived with my family, including 2 children, not knowing what to expect. Imagine our great surprise when we entered the house. It had everything we might need and more. The beach is just a few steps away. This is a magnificent place to spend your vacation. We were fortunate to have met Paris and John. They were truly lovely and assisted us during our arrival and departure. I want to let everyone know that the house is more than the description provided. You can rent this house and you will not be disappointed. This was a vacation like we never had: stress free! Thank you Paris and John for allowing our family to have a fabulous vacation at your house!! We will definitely return next time!!!!

PERFECT FAMILY GET AWAY

  • 5 of 5
Our family of five and fido just spent our Christmas holiday at Sandy Toes. Not enough words to describe our enjoyment and complete expectations of a perfect vacation. Sandy Toes is a warm and friendly home away from home providing all of our needs for a relaxing family get away. Clean pet friendly beaches, dolphins, and beach treasures sand dollars and hundreds of shark teeth for the finding. Easy ascess to and from the main land to island. Enjoyed a time of worship at the island chapel for Christmas Eve service as well as Sunday and enjoyed community library for the sharing. Great for exploring in the golf cart available which we would recommend for family outings getting to know the island. We cant't wait to get a chance to return to Sandy Toes. Got to meet the owners to our delight so friendly and welcoming. This is a real treasure!

MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
We arrived to Little Gasparilla Island for the Memorial Day holiday weekend. Our first impressions of the house was that it was immaculate. I specifically enjoyed the wrap around deck which was amazing and provides wonderful views of the surrounding grounds. The open deck on the side of the house provided for a sunny space for tanning in the afternoon and for moonlight/stargazing at night. The inside of the house is cozy, clean and comfortable. The family room is very large and has plenty of seating for the entire family. The kitchen was large and had all the utensils you need. The bedrooms were large and comfortable, especially one bedroom with views of the beach. The house itself is a few steps away from the beach and it was very comfortable walking to and from the beach when needed. Overall, I would definitely return to Sandy Toes for another vacation with my family.
